Re: Social Systems & Slavery
In Response To: Re: Social Systems & Slavery ()
I agree that UNDER THE LAW there probably was no "class" difference.
Please note that the key word here is LAW.
However, we all know in actuality that the laws were broken constantly.
Same as in India; their ancient caste laws which denied the "Untouchable" class the same rights as the higher classes are on the books,.... but those laws are difficulty to enforce, and therefore constantly ignored by the people.
Earlier some one responded to my post that even Native Americans (Indians) were sometimes enslaved.
Well that was definitely against the laws which were instituted by the monarchs of Europe.
For example, Queen Isabella (Ferdinand's wife), forbade enslavement of American Indians.
I could give a few specific examples, but I do not wish to do so on this forum (Discussion).
Please change all my posts back to FPOC. That is the only forum which I wish to write on at the present time.
